The family of Jade Morris has received support from the Las Vegas community after the beautiful 10-year-old child was found murdered.
It’s unfortunate when tragedy strikes any family and when a 10-year-old child is brutally murdered, the outrage is indescribable.
One day, she was a happy little girl so full of life and, in the blink of an eye, what was supposed to be a holiday shopping trip turned deadly.
Jade Morris’ father, Philip Morris, has been involved in an off-again on-again type of relationship with Brenda Stokes, a dealer at the Bellagio.
Although, she hasn’t exactly provided a reason why she committed such a heinous act, there was apparently a love triangle involving a woman that she worked with.
She picked Jade up from her mother’s house, as she has done in the past and never returned with the little girl.
She killed her by stabbing her over 40 times.
Then she showed up at the Bellagio and, armed with razors in each hand, and in the Bellagio razor attack slashed the face of the woman she perceived as her love rival.
